Sims 4 Acting Career Bug

★★ Newbie

So I recently switched laptops, and decided i'd have a sim join the acting career.

It's the first time I've used the career on the new laptop but I expected it to run the same, however, whenever I made my sim do the prep tasks, as soon as they arrived on set they would go from completed to 'Not Started', despite me having done them.

This has proved an issue since now whenever I attempt 'risky' options they are unable to do them, and I cannot get any gold star performances.

The only difference I can think of that might have influenced this is that I recently got the Discover University pack and the sim studied drama so got a boost in their career.

 

I'd be really thankful if anyone knew the cause of this, or knew anyway to sort it out.

 

Thanks

It's been 20 days. How long should we wait? I'm really tired of the endless problems of The Sims.

Ooh definitely saw this bug and it's quite nasty. Traveled to three different lots, to solve it, every single time it gets reset. I don't know if "send alone" with all the prep work tasks completed would yield better results but I hope that would be the workaround for now. Such a shame, actor career is really fun.

Same issue, even for skills I have level 10 on, once I join them all prep tasks are "not started". Really annoying, any idea when it's most probably fixed?
